Athlete's Village

GWN is pleased to continue to offer the Athlete's Village Site Selection Program. We hope to remove much of the stress and challenges that teams experience once on-site, by allowing you to reserve your Team Site, well in advance of race weekend.

Every site is approximately 400 sq. ft. in size. They will be assigned on a first-come-first-serve basis and can only be assigned once payment for the event is received in full.

There are 3 sections within Athlete's Village: Rented Tents, All Access and the Breast Cancer Survivor Village. Instructions and descriptions are outlined below, along with team site availability.

CIBC Breast Cancer Survivor Village

Created in 2007, the CIBC Breast Cancer Survivor Village is unique to the GWN Dragon Boat Challenge Presented by CIBC. Located on prime real estate at the entrance of the Athlete's Village, the area is utilized by all Breast Cancer Survivor (BCS) teams, family and supporters as a home over the two-day festival. 

Each morning, a free breakfast is provided for all BCS participants. While enjoying a light meal before the racing begins, participants share stories, reconnect with past teammates, and create those life-long bonds that are so strong between BCS Teams.

BCS teams are also treated to additional races! Beyond racing in the Women's or Mixed Division, BCS teams also participate in 1 to 2 additional BCS only races! For more information please contact us at:
